Laser Hair Removal for Men with Hobbit Feet

10th July 2013

The holiday season and warmer weather always calls for flip flops and sandals. Feet all over the nation are being set free from socks and sweaty closed footwear in order to keep cool over the summer. With more feet and legs being on show, more and more men are turning to clinics offering Laser Hair Removal services in order to rid themselves of hairy “Hobbit feet”.

Findings have shown that the number of men undergoing this highly effective treatment has doubled in the last year, and it isn't just the metrosexual men.

Hobbit feet can be described as being large and hairy, as seen in the popular Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films. Hair removal for men is nothing new, but this foot grooming phenomenon comes down to those fashion-forward males who enjoy indulging in branded sandals or flip flops. This lifestyle doesn't always come cheap - take a pair of crocodile hide Bottega Veneta flip flops found on the Mr Porter website for example, £300 anyone?

Actor Martin Freeman, also known as ‘Bilbo Baggins’ who played the leading role in “The Hobbit” film commented on his own experiences of ‘hobbit feet’, “it's quite unpleasant, actually... if it's a hot day, it gets sweaty.” We hear you Martin. There's nothing wrong with wanting to look good from head to toe this summer.

Laser Hair Removal works by focusing a laser towards the base of hair follicles, which decreases the hair growth rate with further treatments for maximum benefit. Unwanted hair found on the feet will need treatment every 6 weeks. We recommend a minimum of six treatments.

If you want to say no to ‘Hobbit feet’, what are you waiting for? Book a consultation at a sk:n clinic near you and speak to one of our skin experts about Laser Hair Removal today!
